3.2.2: Disassemble Mesh Load

The procedure for distributing mesh-loads on a structure can be computationally heavy. The “Disassemble Mesh Load”-component lets one freeze a mesh-load. It returns the point- and element-loads which were originally generated for reuse with another structure (see fig. 3.2.2.1). One has to make sure that the parts of the geometry on which the original mesh-load acted did not change too much. Point-loads are defined using their position, element-loads refer to their elements via element-index. In order to reuse the latter, the corresponding element-indexes of the new and old model need to match.
